    Music Discovery app Shazam was today updated to version 6.2.1, adding a new feature that allows Twitter users to listen to previews directly within Twitter when a tagged song is Tweeted from Shazam.

    Song recognition has received a speed boost, which will be especially noticeable on older devices like the iPhone 3GS and the iPhone 4. Recognition in difficult environments has also been enhanced, and Explore charts have been revamped to display more recent popular songs.
    Shazam is a universal app that can be downloaded from the App Store for free. [Direct Link]

    Meanwhile after five years, there still isn't a way to export a list of your tagged songs.

    The version that sans Encore is free, but has limited listens.

    Impressive what the app can do by now, but I would be interested if people really use all the additional features being added lately. I guess most still use it for music recognition.

    It still can't identify songs by humming them like Soundhound can. I'm happy with Shazam but I occasionally have a song in my head that I'd like to find out what it is by humming it.

    Nice to see a vendor supporting older devices. Fact is even the oldest iPodTouch and iPhone is very powerful and should be supported for just about everything. Apple should continue to support old hardware - that is green.

    Shazaam to me is more accurate than Sound Hound.

    Please, Shazaam identifies EDM better than Sound Hound. So Shazaam is a winner to me.
